Four of family found Dead in Ludhiana



Four members of a family, including 15-year-old daughter, were found dead at their residence, in I-block of Bhai Randhir Singh Nagar, Ludhiana, on Friday.

Bachan Kaur (70), her son Sandeep Singh (55), daughter-in-law Amandeep Kaur (45) and granddaughter Dilnaj Kaur(15) were found dead with bullet injuries, police said.

The police also found bullet shells from the spot and initial details suggested that all of them have been murdered. However, the new reports coming out suggest that Sandeep first killed his wife, then his mother and daughter before taking his own life. 

The incident came to light after their domestic help entered home around 10.30 am and was shocked to see the body of Bachan Kaur out in the lobby. The other three bodies were found inside the home.

A 315 bore weapon found near the bodies is thought to be the weapon used by Sandeep to first kill his family and then commit suicide.

It is being said that Sandeep was under depression for a long time due to a property dispute.
 
Ludhiana police commissioner J S Aulakh and Deputy Commissioner of Police Dhruman Nimbale are on the spot.

Cabinet approves new AIIMS in Bhatinda



The Union Cabinet chaired by the Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi has approved the establishment of a new AIIMS at Bhatinda in Punjab under the Pradhan Mantri Swasthya Suraksha Yojana (PMSSY) and have a capacity of 750 beds.

This will include emergency and trauma beds, AYUSH beds, private beds and ICU specialty and super specialty beds.

In addition, there will also be an administration block, AYUSH block, auditorium, night shelter, hostels and residential facilities.

The new AIIMS at Bhatinda will provide super specialty health care to the population while creating a large pool of doctors and other health workers in this region that can be available for primary and secondary level institutions/facilities being created under National Health Mission (NHM). The institute will also conduct research on prevalent regional diseases and other health issues and provide for better control and cure of such diseases.

The cost of the project will be Rs 925 crore. However, the above cost estimate does not include recurring costs (wages and salaries and operation and maintenance expenses).

The recurring expenditure will be met by the respective new AIIMS from their annual budgets through grant-in-aid to them from Plan budget head of PMSSY of Ministry of Health and Family Welfare.

The project will be completed in a period of 48 months from the date of the approval. It comprises a pre-construction phase of 15 months, a construction phase of 30 months and stabilisation and commissioning phase of three months.

"The population in Punjab and adjoining regions will be benefited by this AIIMS," the statement by the Goverment said.

The Central Sector Scheme, Pradhan Mantri Swasthya Suraksha Yojana (PMSSY) was first announced in August 2003 with the primary objective of correcting the regional imbalances in availability of affordable/reliable tertiary level healthcare in the country in general, and to augment facilities for quality medical education in under-served or backward States, in particular. Under this scheme AIIMS have been established in Bhubaneshwar, Jodhpur, Raipur, Rishikesh, Bhopal and Patna while work of AIIMS Rae Bareli is in progress. Also, three AIIMS in Nagpur (Maharashtra), Kalyani (West Bengal) and Mangalagiri in Guntur (A.P) have been sanctioned in 2015.

Modi had recently laid the foundation of a new AIIMS in Gorakhpur after the Union Cabinet gave its nod for the establishment of the institution there.

PUNJAB POLITICIANS GANG UP - TO REMAIN SILENT

PUNJAB POLITICIANS GANG UP - TO REMAIN SILENT



For more than two decades, Punjab's politicians manage to remain silent after seven Sikh TADA prisoners are beaten to death inside a jail.

For more than nine years, Punjab's politicians manage to remain silent after the government in UP succeeds in getting the case against perpetrators closed.

Today, Punjab's politicians again managed to remain silent. 

Hours after a top Indian national newspaper made explosive revelations about the horrendous crime and the sinister ways in which Mulayam Singh Yadav government connived to get the case closed against those who had murdered the Sikh men in their custody and injured 21 others inside the Pilibhit jail, not one MP from Punjab raised the issue in Parliament.

Not one MP.

Akali Dal president Sukhbir Singh Badal today held a press conference to claim how Punjab has become power surplus state. He managed to remain silent on Pilibhit murders inside jail. No journalist thought it worth his or her while to pose a question on the issue.

Punjab BJP chief Vijay Sampla held a meeting of his new state set up of the party. Not a single mention of the issue was made by Sampla or others.

The voluble Anand Sharma of Congress, who does nto let go of any issue to blast the BJP, did not think hurting Mulayam Singh Yadav or Akhilesh Yadav's government would help the Congress.

The Pilibhit massacre of Sikh TADA detenues inside the jail has united our politicians in this conspiracy of silence.

So far, Aam Aadmi Party seems part of the conspiracy. No hoardings are to be put up anywhere in Punjab about Pilibhit killngs. Attacking Majithia gets more votes, talking about killed TADA detenues and letting the killers scotfree is not good politics.

Only the Allahabad High Court has ordered that a notice be sent to the Uttar Pradesh government questioning the decision to withdraw a CB-CID inquiry and cases against the 42 Pilibhit district jail employees, responsible for the 1994 custodial death of seven TADA victims.

The seven TADA detenues were killed in Pilibhit jail on the intervening night of November 8-9, 1994 when they were brutally beaten up by the jail staff. Twenty-one suffered grievous injuries. The then chief minister Mulayam Singh Yadav had ordered a CB-CID probe against the 42 guilty jail staff.

The dramatic U-turn came in 2007 when the Mulayam Singh Yadav government came to power again. It permitted withdrawal of the case against the jail staff. 

The issue was revived following a report in The Tribune on May 9 this year. The Indian Express came up with a detailed explosive story on July 27, 2016.

The politicians came up with their reaction -- absolute, conspiratorial silence -- as a matter of reflex action.

Religious movie and liquor vend



The social media is abuzz with a photo of the state government’s publicity van stationed alongside a liquor vend and showing ‘Char Sahibzade’, a religious movie. A man is seen buying liquor. A local resident claimed that the photo was clicked at Khappainwali village in the district. When contacted, sarpanch Joga Singh claimed that the van was parked at a ‘safe distance’ from the vend. But the embarrassing damage has already been done.

Bhagwant Mann suspended from Lok Sabha

Bhagwant Mann suspended from Lok Sabha



Bhagwant Mann, who live-streamed his arrival at parliament last week, triggering outrage among other MPs who said he willfully jeopardised security, has been told not to attend the Lok Sabha till a decision is made about how he should be penalised.

According to a NDTV report, Lok Sabha Speaker Sumitra Mahajan has reportedly advised Mr Mann, who belongs to the Aam Aadmi Party and represents Punjab, to stay away from the House for now.

"I had given the written apology to the speaker, perhaps it wasn't enough," Mr Mann said, adding that "all parties ganged up against the AAP in parliament."

"Decision is not against Bhagwant Mann but my party which is opposing Modi government's policies," the AAP lawmaker said.

Bhagwant Mann submitted what he described as "an unconditional apology" to Ms Mahajan last week with little effect. She said it was "not enough"; a committee of nine members will now investigate the incident.

On Thursday, Mr Mann live-streamed on a Facebook his car entering parliament from the gate which was used in a terror attack in 2001 in which nine people were shot dead along with five terrorists. The AAP leader said his intent was to allow his constituency to sample his routine as a parliamentarian.

He is heard saying "Now I will show you something you have never seen before" as he introduces the video, which was first live streamed, then posted on his Facebook page as a 12-minute clip before it was blocked on Friday.

Bhagwant Mann also filmed the room where questions are selected from a host submitted by MPs for discussion in the Zero Hour that begins the day's proceedings.

After initial defiance - he vowed to post another video the next day - Mr Mann expressed his remorse. The Speaker has said that she is also looking into complaints from those assigned seats near him that he reeks of alcohol. "I do not come to parliament drunk," Mr Mann said on Friday.
